Ricky Wilson has put his name forward as a coach on The Voice UK in 2018.

The Kaiser Chiefs' frontman was a coach on the show when it was on BBC One for three years.


And after a year out this series when the show moved to ITV, Ricky's hoping for a comeback to the spinning red chairs.

He told The Sun newspaper: "I’m open to it. I await the phone call. I’d love to do it.”

Ricky continued: "I know how to do it now.

“I got a lot more involved in it than I ever thought I would, I thought it would be all smoke and mirrors and a bit showbizzy… but you get genuinely attached to them.”

It's not the first time Ricky has revealed his hopes of returning, saying earlier this year: "I'd love to go back to The Voice. It's loads of fun. I'd go back tomorrow if they asked me."

Ricky told BANG Showbiz: "I'm glad I took some time off – like anything, if you get used to it you get jaded by it, so I'm glad to step away from it, but there's situations where you step away from it and then you're not invited back.

"But one day I'd like to go back, either that or something else. If you asked my partner she'd say I hated it. I probably hate doing it but I love having done it."

Ricky left The Voice UK for the first series on ITV this year in a big shake up to the panel that also saw Paloma Faith and Boy George go.


Replacing them were returning coach Sir Tom Jones plus newbies Jennifer Hudson and Gavin Rossdale, alongside who has been a coach since day one.
